  • maybe i wasn’t understanding… do i WANT bots to be attracted to the field and therefore name it something like this??

    <label> Your Name
    [text* nm620] </label>

    <label> Your Email
    [email* em620] </label>

    [honeypot honeypot-email]

    <label> Subject
    [text* sj620] </label>

    <label> Your Message
    [textarea* ms620] </label>

    Yep, you definitely want bots to be attracted to the honeypot field. But you shouldn’t call it “honeypot-email”, as “honeypot” could be a flag to spam bots. Just “email” (or if that might conflict with something, maybe use something like “email-32423”. Naming the other fields with names that aren’t really readable is also smart.

    is this correct?

    <label> Your Name
    [text* nm620] </label>

    <label> Your Email
    [email* em620] </label>

    [honeypot email-32423]

    <label> Subject
    [text* sj620] </label>

    <label> Your Message
    [textarea* ms620] </label>

    [submit “Send”]

    *All fields are required
